Alison has many years of experience as a psychotherapist, supervisor and trainer.
She has been exploring issues of suicide and loss for many years, and, as she begins the process of retiring from some of her professional commitments, she is increasingly aware of the importance of dealing with these issues herself in order to stay fully attached to her relationships in the present and to be open to new attachments in the future.
